    The restaurant was lively, could still hear each other at our table. Our waiter was new, overall was great and attentive. Was disappointed with the baja taco, fish was very dry and the taco was bland. The pork and beef were good, enchiladas were good, and guacamole and salsa were good. Overall it was just good.

    The food was great, tasty and good sized portions. Lots of options for people with food restrictions or allergies. That alone was impressive! Our server was energetic and knowledgeable. It did take a little longer to get our food but probably because it was really busy? Overall, it’s a great restaurant just be sure to book ahead as it’s always really busy!

    I usually love this place for the ambience, but I normally have later seating. We went early and it was Romper Room. Too many kids in the Cantina. I would like to see an adults only section somewhere in Banff. Also, our server was clearly impaired by something. Had to ask / remind him about everything and even ask him for the machine to pay my bill. Won’t be back for a while sadly. Great kitchen - horrible front end management.

    Food was great as well as our server. Lots to look at around the restaurant. It’s a bit expensive for quantity but not the worst for sure, it took a long while for our desert to come but we just had another margarita while waiting. We had a traditional lime margarita and a magpie mojito - it was fantastic and tasted just like Mexico!

    The service was great. Our waitress, Alice, was extremely friendly and awesome at her job. I am allergic to wheat and Magpie & Stump is the very first restaurant that I've eaten at that is able to make almost every single dish on the menu gluten-free. My husband had the Mexican wings and he said they were the best wings he's ever had. We found the prices to be a little high for the size of portions that they give, however that seems to be the "norm" for Banff. Magpie & Stump is definitely going to be added to our list of favorite restaurants!
